friends will be friends...





















Yesterday i finally did some Autumn decoration. Not as much as i would have liked or had secretly planned!

We had friends for launch; something we didn't do for a long time now! This is a couple we (I) know for about 17 years! She's a medical doctor and he's a navy officer like my husband. They have 2 girls and although my baby girl is too small to play with them, they do get along very well with my son. So they always have fun and we ... are able to talk, appreciate food (not in a relaxed way, but who cares!!) and enjoy a glass of good portuguese wine. We spent a great time!! After launch the weather got better and children were able to play in the garden while we tried to relax and enjoy the sun chatting. It's always great to have friends around!...

The photos i share with you today are from the centerpiece i did for the launch table. I used 3 layers of different tissues and fabrics; and things i had bought at the fleamarket on different occasions and places. To give it an autumn look i added some berries from my garden, apples and pears. Now that i saw the photos i thought i should have added some more candles. I used old steal coffee cups as candle holders.

I liked the final result! What do you think about it?

A sunny and lovely week to you! And... please do leave a comment! It always makes me happy to hear from you.

Hallo Rosa,
die Bilder vom gedeckten Tisch sind ja wundervoll!!
Und die herbsliche Deko gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut.
Deine Bilder haben immer den besonderen Touch und wirken immer so nostalgisch. Das gefällt mir sehr gut.
Ich bekomme das leider bei meinen Bildern nicht hin...
Wünsche dir einen sonnigen Mittwoch
